Yarovaya: Fight against corruption may destroy sovereignty of state
The Anti-Corruption Committee Head said that a new model of corruption is being formed in the world, when officials act, violating the legitimate interests of the state and the business community.
The task of combating corruption may be used to destroy the sovereignty of the state. This opinion, Vedomosti writes, adheres to Chairman of the Committee on Security and Anti-Corruption of the State Duma Irina Yarovaya.
"We are very concerned about what is happening in Ukraine, where under the guise of fighting corruption, the whole system of state power was destroyed," the deputy said, speaking at the international scientific and practical conference Partnership between the state and business.
An element of unsound international competition, according to Yarovaya, is also the application of sanctions against Russian business in the absence of illegal actions on its part. Thus, a new model of corruption is formed in the world, when officials act, violating the legitimate interests of the state and the business community. Such a model is unacceptable, it prevents fair competition, Yarovaya insists.
Earlier, in the same sense Deputy Minister of Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Russian Federation Igor Zubov spoke about corruption. "All the color revolutions in all countries began under the slogan of fighting corruption," the Deputy Minister said at a meeting of an expert working group in the Government, where they discussed the initiative of oppositionist Alexey Navalny about imposing responsibility for illegal enrichment.
The president of Russian Railways JSC, head of the state policy department of the Faculty of Political Science of the Moscow State University n.a. Lomonosov Vladimir Yakunin said speaking before the students of the St. Petersburg State University with a lecture that corruption "is an integral part of globalization."
Aqua business on Baikal. Chinese people to drink the unique lake to the lees? What does this have to do with Deripaska?
Following a request from the West-Baikal Interdistrict Environmental Prosecutor's Office, the Kirovsky District Court of Irkutsk has suspended the construction of a water bottling plant in Kultuk township, Slyudyanka district, pending the rectification of defects identified in the course of the inspection. The construction has been put on hold; the court has to make the final decision in two months. In the meantime, public activists and environmentalists are ringing alarm bells. An all-Russia public rally to protect Lake Baikal is scheduled to March 24; its program includes collection of signatures against the plant construction by AquaSib company belonging to Chinese investors. A day after the court decision, a fire occurred on Talovskie swamps in Kultuk – it must be noted that the main claims brought against the project owners pertain to these swamps. The CrimeRussia was figuring out what threats does the project pose to the lake and local environment, how was it approved, whether a ‘water competition’ is possible in the region, and what has oligarch Oleg Deripaska to do with this?
